The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2014 that American adults and children alike are simply not eating their fruits and vegetables. The study, titled Healthy People 2010, found that efforts to get the public to eat the recommended daily allowance of at least 2 servings of fruit and at least 3 of vegetables fell flat. Over all, not a single state hit the target numbers. In the meantime, Americans are experiencing epidemic rates of overweight and obesity and chronic diseases are on the rise.
On June 2, 2011, the federal government released the new food icon, MyPlate, with suggestions for a healthy diet. USDA now suggests that 50% of your plate be fruits and vegetables at every meal.*** Greens First Berry is the convenient and delicious way to get the antioxidants and phytonutrients you need everyday!
